The ISBT Academy was founded in 2011 to support applications for education and research activities. In 2013 the ISBT Board decided that the Academy would focus only on education and today ISBT’s education and knowledge activities are facilitated through the Academy.
The ISBT Academy Goals:
- Overseeing the ISBT Academy ePortal.
- Hosting and/or financially supporting workshops or educational activities.
- Supporting educational activities by use of the ISBT logo.
The AfSBT regularly seeks the financial support of the ISBT Academy to fund a one day educational activity during its biennial congress that it deems appropriate for its membership. The Academy day precedes the main congress and is open to all registered delegates. AfSBT comes up with a suitable theme for the Academy day and identifies suitable faculty to provide the tuition to its members. ISBT Academy provides the financial support required.
This year’s theme is: Haemovigilance – open to all registered delegates.
